for the romney campaign even if this is leaning to the right. >>chris: i would like to see, and i would have said this regardless of who the pollster was, i would like to see several polls because one can be an outlier and you want to see if there is a trend. you would expect it would close. romney had a very good night and he diffused a lot of the attacks that obama has been making against him for the last few months. things like he is out of touch and he is as concerned about the rich and does not care about the middle class or he is a right-wing extremist. mitt romney did not come off that way on wednesday night. i would expect it to close in the states. here is the point, if obama had a really goodnight and romney had a very bad night with the polls all showing "bomb with a big lead in the wing states, a lot people would say this race is over. that it has gotten out of hand for romney given the fact it was exactly the opposite, a big romney win, now it is a very competitive race and it ensures it will go on. it ensures it will be a tight, tough, competitive race right to election day. >>trace
him. >>guest: right. romney has been running a national campaign based on the economy, based on getting obama out of office but we have seen him when he is in ohio or virginia, focus on niche issues like energy. so he seems to be recognizing that this race is going to be determined by those few states. however, his campaign and republicans often tout the national polls that show a tightened race where as the obama campaign has always said the race will be tight nationally but we are look specifically at the states such as virginia, ohio, florida colorado and those states to look at how the campaign is going. >>shepard: you listen carefully to their message and it sounds like the folks lean on defense and foreign policy and they have been going after the president and his team regarding the attack at the embassy. >>guest: absolutely. if you look at the new "washington post" poll, obama is leading on almost every issue. romney only leads on handling the deficit but the two are split on the economy. obama is leading on medicare, health care. people find his international policie
was right. >>trace: the romney campaign is portraying the race as a very stark choice between the two candidates. >>reporter: highlight the differences. they got help from moderator jim lehrer who said several times we are very clear that there are very stark differences between the two of you. governor romney tried to make this a referendum on obama but that was not going anywhere so the big choice highlighting on the different issues from taxes to spending and the deficit. >> only in washington would you count $4 trillion of reduction when, in fact, the plan called for adding $1 trillion of debtry one of the next fur years. i think that is wrong. we should instead take a course represented by free democrat to get america to cap our funding, cut our spending and get us on track to a balanced budget. >>reporter: the obama campaign licking their wounds and said governor romney has a vigorous performance that was devoid of honesty. the romney campaign firing back against that saying that the obama campaign has been engaging inning in but false statements. trace, the war of words continu
reach the high level or that bar. that is what he is trying to do. look, if romney does his job right, he will keep the president, force him to be defensive about his record and the massive unemployment, and the people that is given up looking if work, about the debt and obamacare, the massive amounts of spending. >>trace: sherry, the problem is, the problem with that, he will get the president on defensive and he will go after him and you hear a lost pundits say, you know what he needs it do he needs to go on offense and score points. rather than putting the president on his heels he needs to promote his sell. >> what we saw in the primaries he is a gentleman, letting everyone have their 15 minutes of fame, like colleagues in disagreement. he cannot do that, he has to bring his best game and be strong and be aggressive. he has to talk about obama's record saying what he would do differently and what he stands for. he has to keep obama on defensive. you say 93 percent of the people say they will watch the debates. they written. most people will hear the one linears and the outtakes. t
this and a national security issue for the president, politics doesn't weigh in on it. this is only one person right now trying to play politics with this issue. it is mitt romney. when he came out before the facts were known and specific on it, shot from the hip. before our families remain even notified. ever since, jumbled the story line, have it calf the president, but, still, has yet to put out his own foreign policy vision and say what he would do differently on libya or any number issues. >>shepard: i understand your criticism on the jumbling of the story line but i want to get to the bottom the jumbling of the story line on this matter because this matter of susan rice telling us one thing and intelligence knowing something else entirely is a matter that could be very tricky for a campaign and, frankly, could be concerning to a lot of americans that the president goes off to a campaign event to raise money and we have had the assassination of an ambassador overseas for the first time since 1979. >>guest: as i said at the beginning, i don't have access to any information on this beyond what is
